Our high speed on-demand cutters are a very cost effective method of producing rubber washers and rubber gaskets. These “flying knife” type cutters cut rubber tubing into rubber washers and rubber gaskets at high production speeds with minimal waste of material.
Thomas A. Caserta, Inc. has our on-demand cutters custom made with intermittent stop-and-go technology that provides an efficient cutting process of up to 800 cuts per minute. Due to the brief stop, high length accuracy and precise right-angled cuts are achieved. Our high speed on-demand cutting services offer fast turnaround time, precise tolerance, high production volume, and prototype and short run production.
We utilize our high speed on-demand cutters to consistently produce high quality, precision cut, rubber washers, rubber gaskets, rubber bushings, rubber spacers, rubber stand-offs, and rubber discs.
These are the most common material but we are not limited to them:
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) - Excellent weatherability, good high and low temperature resistance, low gas permeability. Resistant to ozone, steam, water, alcohols, brake fluids. Poor resistance to petroleum oils, diester lubricants. Temperature range: -60°F to 280°F.
Neoprene - Good general purpose elastomer, with moderate oil, ozone and water resistance. Resistant to freons, high aniline points oils, mild acids. Not recommended for phosphate esters, ketones, brake fluids. Temperature range: -65°F to 260°F.
Nitrile - Excellent resistance to petroleum products, excellent compression set; resistant to oil, water, silicone greases and oils. Not recommended for halogenated hydrocarbons, ketones, ozone and sunlight. Temperature Range: -65°F to 275°F.
Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR) - General purpose elastomer, good adhesion to various substrates, good abrasion resistance, good resiliince. Resistant to brake fluids, alcohols, water. Not recommended for solvents, oil/gas, sunlight. Temperature range: -65°F to 225°F.
Silicone - Best overall temperature range of elastomers currently available. Excellent resistance to dry heat, as well as, resistance to low temperature, brake fluids, high aniline point oils. Not recommended for some dynamic applications due to poor tensile strength and tear. Poor in petroleum oils and ketones. Temperature range: -150° to 500°F.
Viton® - Outstanding resistance to the effects of heat, chemicals, and solvents. Viton® has good tensile, resistance and low compression set. Limitations include poor low-temperature properties, limited hot-water resistance and shrinkage. Temperature range: -50° to 600°F.
